Apple Chutney

Updated: Nov 1, 2023

This recipe for Apple Chutney is fresh-tasting with a citrus component and works well with both sweet and savory dishes. It tastes delicious on pork, roast chicken, or other white meat. I also love Apple Chutney on oatmeal and if you are as brave as us try it on ice cream or toast.

2 beautiful jars of apple chutney.

  • 8 cups cored, peeled, and diced Apples

  • 1 cup chopped Pecans

The ingredients to make chutney.


Combine all the ingredients, except the nuts, in a large pot and simmer until it is nice and thick and the fruit has softened. Remove from the heat and add the nuts.

Fill your jars with apple chutney leaving 1/2 inch headspace.

Fill the jars leaving 1/2-inch of headspace.

Place the lid on top of the jar and add the ring. Tighten the ring to fingertip tight and process in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes if at sea level. Remember to adjust your processing time if you are above 1000 feet in elevation.

Processing complete for the apple chutney.

Once your Apple Chutney has completed processing, space the jars about an inch apart on a cloth on the counter for 24 hours to cool and completely seal.

If your jar did not seal, then place it in the fridge and use it immediately. Store the sealed jars in your pantry to enjoy for the next 1-3 years. After three years the nutritional value of canned food diminishes. The quality is best in the first year.

If you have any questions about canning with a boiling water bath canner or how to adjust the processing time for altitude, take a look at our canning basics videos.

We hope you love this recipe as much as we do.
